Pieces of My Heart" a few years back, and of course he was superb on "Two and a Half Men". In this fun book R.J. takes us on a trip down his memory lane. It was light and cheerful, happy memories of wonderful places and times that unfortunately don't exist anymore. The Golden Age of Hollywood was indeed a special time, and R.J. was lucky enough to be there for the parties and the people, and we're lucky enough to still have him around to share it with us.

Robert Galbraith's latest Cormoran Strike novel, "The Silkworm", was very good. Cormoran is still reaping the benefits of his success in solving the Lula Landry case, and decides to be a bit reckless and take a case that doesn't pay because it's interesting. Owen Quine, a writer of marginal success, has gone missing. His wife doesn't want to involve the police because Owen has taken off before, only to be found with a girlfriend. Strike goes digging and discovers Owen has written a very nasty book, barely bothering to disguise the people he's slandering. The book is completely unpublishable, and his publishing house has put a lid on it for fear of being sued, which of course means everyone and their brother has read it. When Strike does find Owen's body, he's horrified to learn that he died in the same manner as he described in his last manuscript. The police arrest his wife, but Strike is convinced she didn't do it.
